Watch: Penguins' Hornqvist crawls on bench to avoid penalty call

Sunday November 1st, 2015

Pittsburgh Penguins winger Patric Hornqvist was truly in the Halloween spirit during Saturday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs

Call it trying to avoid a penalty for too many men on the ice, being under the spell of Sidney Crosby's puck wizardry or maybe the Swedish forward was just channeling his inner black cat, but whatever Hornqvist was doing, it was certainly not normal.

If only teammate Phil Kessel had a chocolate bar to give Hornqvist once he got back on to the bench, would this truly be trick-or-treating.


Hornqvist used his black magic for a treat of his own, adding a goal in the third period against the Leafs.
